    Yeah that's right, I brought it back to Roman numerals. Got a problem with it? Well this is the place to express such senseless anger.

    Rant away my Half-Lived Warboys!

    Oh, and don't forget to do the requisite four pages of complaining about the title.

    Went to bed with 991 oposts in the rants thread and when I woke up there was already a new one.
    And I had such a great idea for a title.

    Bad title, Roman numerals, no # before the number? Awful form.

    Well I will submit that the majority of rant threads do not have a # before the number so :p

    Well I don't get it. Why is somebody acting like a child? And what's that got to do with ranting? And why are we warboys now?? :mad:

    Points for returning to superior roman numerals though. :pat:

    It's part of a bit from the show Maron.

    Because I have decreed it on my authority as inheritor of the rant thread.

    I knew you were one of the civilized ones.

    The Romans are dead, goddamnit. So are their numbers.

    You can't be on a civ forum and be anti roman numerals. It's simply bang out of order.

    Sure I can. Roman numerals are obtuse, annoying to read, annoying to calculate and just plain bad. There's a reason it's 1+1 and not II.

    You're not meant to calculate anything in a RR headline. It's just for show, to add a little chronomatic panache to the title.

    Indeed, but I'm pointing out why Roman numerals shouldn't (and aren't!) used in anything actually important. Also that RR threads should get in the times and use superior Arabic numerals, sheesh.

    Do you think the new civ game should be titled civilization 6 instead of VI? Talk about bad form.

    Seeing the opening cut-scene of a Civilization IV game with default settings (the one with evolution) would be worse if it said Civilization 4 at the end of it

    Yes, save for the fact you'll skip it in the next 10 years you'll be playing the game and probably won't care.

    Civilization IV still looks better than Civilization 4

    "Random Rants: -.... ....-" is the only proper way to do it. :mischief:
